As it is, when I sign-in to proton email, I must type my username, password and then mailbox password. All my passwords are long, complex and impossible to remember, so they're stored on paper. Is there a way to auto-populate all three fields. Chrome will auto-populate username and password only and Firefox doesn't auto-populate any of them. It is too impractical to pull out my password book and type each time I want to check email. I want to get both my parents on proton, but I know they'll never go through this hassle. Thanks.
Hi. You need to use an auto password keeper such as Keepass. May I suggest you look into it because the functionality you request is not related to what Protonmail is providing. Keepass is free, and will more than meet your needs for both security of passwords, auto entry and even auto password creation in a secure manner. Google search......
Password manager is a really bad idea. On Android, for example, password managers copy passwords into clipboard, which broadcasts the password to all applications. Browsers have built-in password managers that are easier to use and oftentimes more secure than 3rd party password manager. Firefox, for example, performs client-side encryption of passwords before sync, so it is about as secure as ProtonMail.
If my laptop gets stoled, then my boot-time password kicks in and protects everything. There's no point in distrusting the client. You can always make it optional by including "Remember me" checkbox that is unticked by default.
The best solution for this example would be to install and use a Password manager. There are a few plugins that might help such as LastPass and 1Pass.
There is a balance between security and ease-of-use that is not easy to solve. If your passwords are auto-populated somehow and then your laptop gets stolen, then what happens?
